From Wikipedia:

"A Shepard tone, named after Roger Shepard (born 1929), is a sound consisting of a superposition of sine waves separated by octaves. When played with the base pitch of the tone moving upward or downward, it is referred to as the Shepard scale. This creates the auditory illusion of a tone that continually ascends or descends in pitch, yet which ultimately seems to get no higher or lower."

These samples use individual "Shepard notes", allowing you to play scales and melodies that sound like they're always increasing or decreasing in pitch as long as you want. But the effect will only work if used with all the samples in the "Shepard Note Samples" pack.
